LASER THERAPY IS HERE!
Companion Animal Hospital of Tamaqua is excited to offer our clients Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions and can be performed in conjunction with existing treatment protocols. Relief and/or improvement is often noticed within hours depending on the condition and your pet's unique health status. Whether you pet is rehabilitation from trauma, healing from wounds or simply aging, your companion can benefit from this innovative approach to treating pain.
Applications for Laser Therapy include:
- treatment of arthritis, degenerative joint diseases and hip dysplasia
- general pain management (sprains, stains and stiffness
- skin problems (hot spots, lick granulomas)
- wounds and burns
- ear infections
How does it work?
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body for about 3 to 8 minutes and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This results in relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation and an acceleration of the healing process.
What can my pet expect during a laser therapy treatment session?
Simply put, it provides relief. As the laser is administered, your pet will relax and enjoy the treatment. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experiences will dissipate. Pain relief is provided in just a few minutes of therapy and that alone improves the quality of life for your pet.
